Bodega Noemia de Patagonia A Lisa 2012
Other Red Blends from Patagonia, Argentina
Dense violet and plum color. Dark berries, cherry and cocoa on the nose. Excellent structure with fruit notes of cherry and cassis; medium-bodied with balanced, persistent tannins.
Wine & Spirits - "While this wine opens up in a decanter, broil some steaks, as it’s a malbec that requires some patience. This is intense in both red and fruit and in structure- built on acidity and firm tannins. By the time the steak is done, the wine wil have integrated perfectly. This comes from a vineyard planted in 1932 in Mainqué, in Río Negro, which Noemía bought shortly after settling in Patagonia in 2001. It’s now the basis of some of the winery’s best wines.“"
The Wine Advocate - "The 2012 A Lisa is a fragrant blend of 90% Malbec, 9% Merlot and a pinch of Petit Verdot from their estate vineyards planted in 2004 and grapes purchased from local grape growers. It is a wine of great freshness, with notes of violets, lilies, pomegranates, wild strawberries and a chalky sensation, The palate is medium-bodied, but feels rather light on its feet, with the freshness of blood oranges. It has great length and a mineral, almost salty finish. A great wine and a great value! "
Bodega Noemia de Patagonia Winery
Residing on the 39th latitude, Bodega Noemia is one of the southern-most wineries in the world. A region of glacial origins with poor soil and limestone-rich bedrock, it benefits from the mineral-rich waters of the Limay and Neuquen rivers. First plated in 1932, the original pre-phylloxera rootstock of the vineyards was carefully resuscitated starting in 2001, and winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers oversaw the estate'd Massale selections in order to create tailored vineyard compositions. To amplify the terroir's signature in the final wines, fermentation is carried out using only indigenous yeasts. Committed to protecting this unique patrimony, almost all Bodega Noemia wines are produced in accordance with Argencert organic and Demeter biodynamic standards.

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.
